I can’t believe that there are so many women who choose to deliver via C-section for cosmetic reasons – I won’t elaborate on this one. I’ll be honest; I am still a little bitter about this. My husband and I took the classes; we practiced at home. Here is what I know: My son was exposed to antibiotics while he was in distress during labor.Thirty-six hours of drug-induced hell, and I still ended up with a C-section. He was then exposed for the first two weeks of his life via breast milk.Fast forward a few years and Coca Cola Classic was found to have one of the highest levels of mercury due to HFCS of any product tested.I didn’t eat one bite of fish during my pregnancy for fear of mercury.
He received vaccinations for seven different diseases despite being ill, and we left with a prescription for Amoxicillin.
It is easy to see how a combination of all of the above could have a negative impact.
Because I had made the bad decisions about the ultrasounds that led to the bad decision about the Pitocin that led to labor trauma, I ultimately had to have an emergency C-section.
4) Pitocin – Two of the ultrasounds I received at the end of my pregnancy revealed that my water was getting dangerously low, so my OB felt we should induce labor.
After several hours of not making progress on the Pitocin drip at low levels, the hospital encouraged me to sign a waiver allowing them to increase the Pitocin to illegal levels.
